I took the day off...and went to an Alpaca farm. Boy.. was that amazing!
It was remote in Illinois... Calhoun County ... by the town of Hardin.
So so quaint!
The alpacas were owned by a friend....and are taken care of royally.
They live on a bluff-- with a view of the Mississippi River.
Such beautiful and noble animals!
The owner harvests their fleece for garments and rugs. They are so soft...and so gentle.
What a treat to learn about their care -- and see their gentle kindness.
Thank you Kathy-- for opening your farm and letting us enjoy your world!
